“I had heard from other librarians in my district how wonderful Tammi Sauer’s presentations are, and she did not disappoint! Her boundless energy, enthusiasm, and creativity kept her audiences captivated. Each presentation was grade-appropriate, interactive, and relevant as she shared how reading and writing go hand-in-hand. Tammi obviously loves what she does, and it shines through every word. Best of all, her books are gifts that keep on giving; they are absolutely delightful, and students of all ages can’t get enough of them. If you’re looking for a fun, effective author to visit your school, Tammi Sauer is an exceptional choice!”

"Tammi Sauer is so incredibly dynamic and interactive that our district decided we must get to visit us again as soon as possible! Her presentations are geared towards different age groups and she always includes her student audience as part of the visit, often encouraging students to act aloud portions of her award-winning picture books. I heard students commenting, “She’s so funny!” or “I love that book!” as she described how she progresses through the writing process. The schools she visited this semester told me that their students truly took to heart Tammi’s advice for becoming a better writer and are applying her strategies to their own manuscripts. Tammi will knock your socks off with her energetic multimedia presentation and her obvious joy for young readers!"
-- Dr. Lori Franklin, Library Media Coordinator for Olathe Public Schools, Olathe, Kansas
